DCC Leadership Blog

Recently, I was given a list of church members and how long they have attended DCC. I was blown away by the number of members who have faithfully served DCC for over 10 years. Looking over the names, I see so many stories God has been a part of and guided through many journeys. I can only imagine the countless relationships that these families have seen and now have developed lifelong friendships after coming through the doors of DCC. My family has been a part of DCC for 14 years now, which is unimaginable, and I love this family as much as the one I was born into many year ago. Walking these doors those many years ago, I would have never imagined the journey in personal and spiritual growth that has happened in my life. Our newest journey at DCC is exciting as we are seeing new faces every week. A question that is rattling around in my head is, why do families stay at one church for 10 years or more? Although it may be different for those at DCC in this time frame, I believe it comes back to the last sermon series on relationships and family. In the book of Acts, the first church had a mutual love for each other and for Christ. Acts 2:44 states, “And all who believed were together and had all things in common.” This made them standout from other faiths and attractive to those hearing the Good News.  So, what would it take for you to want to grow in Christ and start putting roots deep into DCC? Only you can answer this question for your family, but I will say, as this family at DCC grows we will need you, just as Christ used the church of Acts, to create relationship with those nearby that are lost and welcome them to the family of Jesus.
